Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Team work under the direction of the Minister and Kirk Session to give support in visiting particularly where there is loneliness, dementia and other illnesses as well as bereavement. The team is made up of both elders and non-elders. Some have attended Pastoral Care Training Conferences run by Church of Scotland Faith Nurture Forum and Falkirk Presbytery. Pastoral Care underpins a lot of what we do at Grahamston United, such as accompanying people to hospital appointments, providing transport to church, distributing flowers to the sick and bereaved after Sunday worship, our Harvest festival, and organising an annual Sunday afternoon tea for Seniors in the church hall.
